Midway: BlackSite and Wheelman Delayed

At its earnings conference call, Midway CEO David Zucker revealed delays for two of its upcoming titles. First up is BlackSite: Area 51, the forthcoming sequel for the alien-shooter. Previously set for release this September, the game will now be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 October 26 in Europe and November 5 in North America.

The Wheelman is the other game to receive a delay. Based on a movie of the same name featuring Vin Diesel, the game has now been pushed back to Q1 or Q2 2008. “We’ll be shifting our release of The Wheelman starring Vin Diesel for the first half of 2008 to give our development team more time to turn this ultimate car chase game into what we expect will be a broad impact top notch title,” Zucker said. The game was initially pegged for release later this year.
